Conspiracy Ceremony – Hypersonic States


by Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir (IS/DE) 

A symphony of pathologies, sentiments, and physical states originating in the personal emotional body is on display in this latest work by choreographer Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir. Emotions rush through these bodies without filters. The viewer experiences extreme, almost painfully private states. The Hyperstates form a corporeal language that serves as a doorway into the subconscious, transferring themselves into the bodies of the audience as they meet the performers with full intensity. 
In “Conspiracy Ceremony – Hypersonic States”, Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir and her long-term artistic associates continue their in-depth research into a methodology that accesses physiological and emotional sub-worlds. Over a series of works, she has developed a new genre of performative body language, and an original working method that directly informs her creative outcomes.
